Two women. Two tied destinies. Two millennia. One enigmatic sword. My name is Jamie Poole, and I’m destined to help the Departed. Yeah, I hear dead people. I’m a kid from a single-parent home in “Small Town, USA.” All I want is outta here, go to college, and see the world. Dad, who left when I was a baby, is an archaeologist. He sends books and pictures but never tells me about himself. When I saw a statue bearing the same sword Dad found in Egypt I knew I needed his guidance. Then a ghost told me the sword’s name: Lumen. I had to find Dad. Mom wouldn’t help, but I’m determined. I found him! We had lots to discover about each other. While we did, we resurrected an ancient Druidess named Eliyana who owned Lumen. Why was Lumen in Egypt if it belonged to her? Did I mention it was forged of a mysterious alloy? As we unraveled those mysteries things got weird. You can’t resurrect someone without consequences. The veil protecting our world from the Otherworld ripped. Think you can imagine the havoc? You’ve no idea. How did Eliyana react to reawakening? She fled. Can she survive here? Will I find Eliyana before disaster strikes? It does when people find themselves “out of Time.” Those dead people I hear? Eliyana’s clan. Killed unjustly. Lumen empowers its owner, but she’s gone and Lumen with her. How can I stop their plea for justice? Her destiny is to lead them. Time can be fixed. But is it too late? Can I restore the veil before danger crosses the Otherworld’s threshold? Follow me in The Isle of Osiris, first in a series of Diaries as I enter a supernatural world steeped in Celtic myth that becomes more real than our own.

In the time of the Troubles, when there were bombs in the night and soldiers on the road, Henry Glassie journeyed to the Irish borderland to learn how country people endure. He settled into the farming community of Ballymenone, beside Lough Erne in the County Fermanagh. He asked questions, and he listened. For a decade he heard and recorded the stories and songs in which they outlined their culture, recounted their history, and pictured their world--a world which, in their view, was one of love and defeat and uncertainty, demanding faith, bravery, and wit. In his award-winning Passing the Time in Ballymenone, Henry Glassie set out to write a comprehensive ethnography of the community. Now, after decades of work in Asia, in Turkey and Bangladesh, in India and Japan, Glassie has returned to Ireland, using his skills as an observer, a listener, a writer, in an effort to understand how poor people in rural places suffer and laugh and carry on while history happens. Glassie's task in The Stars of Ballymenone is to set the scene, to sketch the backdrop and clear the stage, so that Hugh Nolan and Michael Boyle, Peter Flanagan, Ellen Cutler, and their neighbors can tell their own tale. The Stars of Ballymenone is an integrated analysis of the complete repertory of verbal art from a community where storytelling and singing of quality remained a part of daily life. The book includes a CD so the voices of Ballymenone can be heard at last.

The End and The Beginning: From Darkness to Light is a dramatic portrayal of the Son of God, the Pioneer of our faith: JESUS as depicted in the four gospels. This is His story: a story that reaffirms our belief and faith in Him as our Savior. He Was a Galilean Jew and well-acquainted with Jewish law. His birth, ministry, death and resurrection serve as a basis of Gods continuing proclamation of joy and sadness, despair and hope, isolation and crowds and apparent defeat but in the end VICTORY! It is a story that never leaves us: a story that our parents, the sons and daughters of slaves, born of religious convictions and faith, shared with us during the days of our early youth amidst sweat, tears and a weary life. They referred to Him, both in song and thought as their Sweet Little Jesus Boy. This was the only thing that they truly could claim as their own. A CHILD A SON IS GIVEN UNTO YOU AS GOD HAD PROMISED!

Isle of Hope, Georgia, nine miles south of Savannah, is a charming settlement with a story reaching back into the 1700s. Visitors to the area marvel at scenic views along the Skidaway River, grand homes built by early Savannahians, numerous historic sites, abundant wildlife, and water sports. This treasured lifestyle is one that islanders have waged heated battles to protect, and their collective experience is celebrated within the pages of this impressive pictorial volume. An original land grant from King George II of England, photographs of early families, streetcars, Barbee's Pavilion, the original Mysterious Santa Claus, sailboat racing, and more are among the many notable items included in Isle of Hope, Wormsloe, and Bethesda. Wormsloe Plantation, home of Noble Jones built on land leased from the trustees of the colony of Georgia in 1736, is highlighted here, as well as the nearby community of Dutch Island, where Matthew Batson conducted his legendary aero-yacht experiments in 1913. Bethesda, founded in 1740 by Rev. George Whitefield and now America's oldest existing home for boys, comes to life in vintage photographs and a touching poem written by an orphan in 1917. Images culled from both public and private collections evoke memories of a way of life almost extinct in today's frantic world-a way of life held steadfast by the residents of this singular Georgia community.
